Adobe Flash TextField Constructor Type Confusion
Posted Feb 17, 2016
Authored by Google Security Research, natashenka

There is a type confusion vulnerability in the TextField constructor in AS3. When a TextField is constructed, a generic backing object is created and reused when subsequent TextField objects are created. However, if an object with the same ID has already been created in the SWF, it can be of the wrong type. The constructor contains a check for this situation, though, and throws an exception and sets a flag to shut down the player if this occurs. The backing object is then set to be of type TextField to avoid any modifications that have been made on it by the constructor from causing problems if it is used as an object of its original type elsewhere in the player. However, if the exception thrown by the constructor is caught, the exception handler can create another TextField object, and since the type of the generic backing object has been changed, an object of the wrong type is now backing the TextField, which makes it possible to set the pointers in the object to integer values selected by the attacker. The PoC swf for this issue needs to be created by hand.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2016-0166-01
Posted Feb 11, 2016
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2016-0166-01 - The flash-plugin package contains a Mozilla Firefox compatible Adobe Flash Player web browser plug-in. This update fixes multiple vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player. These vulnerabilities, detailed in the Adobe Security Bulletin APSB16-04 listed in the References section, could allow an attacker to create a specially crafted SWF file that would cause flash-plugin to crash, execute arbitrary code, or disclose sensitive information when the victim loaded a page containing the malicious SWF content.
